Clarinets BIG and small- How to Utilize Them ALL!
- This clinic will help band and orchestra directors to improve their clarinet sections by addressing important fundamental ensemble skills such as leadership roles, part independence and player confidence. This clinic will also address the idiosyncrasies of each instrument in the clarinet family (B-flat, E-flat, Alto clarinet, and Bass clarinet) such as intonation, tone color, blend/balance, and technical challenges.
